In case you hadn’t heard, today is Elvis Death Day. I’m quivering with excitement at the fact I get to listen to Don & Mike on internet radio today – their Elvis Death Day shows are always fun with lots of Elvis stories both good and bad.
I was a huge fan of Elvis as a kid and yes, I cried when he died. I was only eight, but I lurved him. He was probably my first celebrity crush. I can remember watching “Clambake” and just adoring him. It’s still my favorite Elvis movie, although “Change of Habit” is quite hilarious in it’s attempt to be more “hard-hitting” on social issues (Mary Tyler-Moore co-stars as a nun).
In any case, when we went to Memphis last year Denis and I checked out Graceland and it didn’t disappoint – I loved the white sofa in the living room. What surprised me the most was just how small the house was – maybe it was big for the 1970s, but by today’s McMansion standard it’s a normal house with decent acreage.
In any case, my pink eye will shed a tear today to honor the King. It will also shed tears just because I have pink eye, but that’s beside the point.
